we are finally doing IT! after 10 years of living in this dump and 6+ of talking about it, the kitchen has spoken! i guess today would mark the official start of our kitchen remodel. we have always hated the layout of our kitchen & knew it needed an overhaul, but then the cabinet doors started falling off, we'd had enough.
we have the bulk of the layout done & the cabinets are coming from IKEA. we knew we wanted (1) an island and (2) to open up the view to the river. here's the before
i highly recommend doing a test layout like this! we already resized the island based on what we've done today. the only thing holding us up at this point is flooring. that's been a 10-year odyssey for me! so somehow i have to do in 30 days what i have not been able to do in 10 years...find flooring for this project. wish me luck!
